Four suspected Islamist fighters blew themselves up at a hideout in Bangladesh, ending a 24-hour stand-off, police said on Friday. Police raided the house in the northern town of Shibganj late on Wednesday on a tip-off that extremists were hiding out there, triggering a tense stand-off that ended with explosions and gunfire late Thursday.

“The four militants from JMB blew themselves up with a bomb explosion,” local police chief Mujahidul Islam told AFP, referring to the banned Islamist group Jamayetul Mujahideen Bangladesh.

Islam said police had arrested the wife of one of the men, who was in custody with her six-year-old daughter.
